See, tall people even get new research to focus on them. Figures.....

I liked Dancy in King Arthur. He's in a new indie film, right? I forget the title but he plays a NYC misfit. Seen it yet?

Sra said...

So you're saying I can stop reading The Time Traveler's Wife now? That book makes me want to vomit every time I crack it open.

Was just going to ask about Away We Go. Read the review.
Claw out, eh?
Ebert's gotten softer with time, hasn't he?
I don't think much of him since he trashed Larry's Sour Grapes. :) Yup, I'm that loyal!

the caveman piece was quite fascinating.

As a tall person, I take issue with the study. They certainly didn't survey me!
